Well that's a bummer. Thanks for checkin.

I uploaded it as an attachment, hosted by BikeForums. I tried switching it to Google Photos, and then Flickr, but neither of those will work; I get a little question mark in a box. Sorry, my technical difficulties are off topic.

We have been having some nice riding days in the Dallas,TX area.

I got in a nice ride a few days ago to White Rock Lake in Dallas on a recently picked up 87 Schwinn Circuit
that was in rough shape with a bit of rust on the chrome sections, lots of paint chips and sc****s
and nearly all the nicer parts long gone.

After a complete disassembly and lots of cleaning, polishing and touching up I built it up for now
as in the pics with parts I had on hand. A road bar may be in the near future.

It's a nice riding machine made even nicer riding it on a glorious Spring day.

I have really been enjoying the pics on this thread.

Got in a ride on 2 bikes.
Skies were not sunny in the foothills around Maple Valley.
Luckily, all dry all 50km.

Funny that I feel so observant (??tho not practicing of any creedo??) that I regularly genuflect in front of the electrical cable supports on an old bridge over a small river. My wife asks if I ever stop to immerse myself or a bike in the waters. . Just another cloudy day. Here was 1 of the 2 bikes ridden on the outandback legs. Note: the missing TT cable guides have been added. And I will find another pic from the ride in a few minutes.

edit: Amazing the little details i see as 'things still undone'. I need to learn to use a ruler instead of eye-balling it, too. Second pic with different wheelset as ridden yesterday. Does that fork look overly Frenchy on a Spanish (Basque) bike?

Riding the Giovanni (Slikker Sport), an undercover Sakae Litage. This is near the coast on the Dutch island Goeree-Overflakkee. And the flowerfields, that are in bloom right now. Sun, sea, flowers, bike, open road. Check. I think the bike and flower colours match quite well.

And this a few days ago, early in the morning. Visit to the beach area, with the Giant Peloton Superlite. A very nice bike... rides like it was made this year. This Giant model was one of the first being introduced in The Netherlands. Haven't seen them around a lot. The other (nutbrown) bike in the first pic is a Belgian Liberty/Wargee. One off, as far as I know.

I may need a Danish bike in the future. How tall are you?
Love the Giovanni.

I should be riding about 60 miles north to view the tulip fields in Skagit County, Washington USA. But it is always vehicle congested and all drivers distracted looking at fields of colour.

Consider yourself 'requited' by below pics.


The colour is what I call creamsicle.
We used to have a summer ice cream-like treat (on a stick) that was almost similar.

I saw this Southern California Rapid Transit District bus parked in the Bronx on my commute into work the other day. It was so conspicuous that I had to stop and take a look. It had historic plates and everything inside the bus looked like it was from decades ago. Pretty cool.

Another lunch break ride. Trying out some new tires on the Trek 950. I've decided to hit the hills with the mtb as often as possible figuring all the climbing will kick start the fitness level faster. Thinking a lighter wheelset in the future will be nice



I've always liked the look of this crankset:

Yep, 4 miles from home. 20 min by the bike if I want to be warm when I get there. Otherwise, drive to the end of the pavement, duck under the gate and start climbing. Miles upon miles of gravel road, old closed roads and Jeep trails to explore.

Another dry day in the Pacific Northwest got me out for 40 miles on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. 'Mostly two-lane roads, but some short sections of the Olympic Discovery Trail.

This pic taken from a former train trestle over Johnson Creek, just east of Sequim, WA.



My Ron Cooper.....sweetest ride in my fleet.



Some shameless advertising for my LBS.

The dry sky meant I had yardwork that could be finally tackled, but in the Spring Buttocks Conditioning Tradition, i cruised the neighborhood for 20 min or so, up to the g**** patch/tiny vineyard.

Strange weather to see the sun all day!!!

Spring is around the Corner!!

I needed to test some Ergon hand grips just installed on my Trek 850, so I rode down to Clairpointe near Bayview YC.

Hoping to spend a fair amount of time as crew on the J111 in the background, both buoy and long distance. A planing 36 footer that can do 20 knots with a sprit mounted asymmetric chute.

Yesterday was an uneventful ride. Today I had to yield for an elk crossing - this was the last of 5. Wish I had the better camera rather than the phone today.

'Tis almost always the case at those chance moments! However, I think the shot you took gives the impression just well enough. The important thing is that you got to enjoy the sight!

Today again wasn't a proper ride, but I did pump tires, wipe chains cleaner, and short-ride the latest 4 Euro bikes to be acquired since the last International Bike Day, 4/19/17. I'm nothing if not tardy. The Carabela was inconveniently parked and therefore missing.

Missed this...thanks! The build thread's linked below. I've been meaning to update it once I get the correct water slides I grabbed a while ago in place. Should be any year now... The bars are solid, stiffer than the sleeved version which I've also used. I thought the velobase page showed both versions, but that's not what I see now.

Gearing is 46/36/26 x 13-32, 7 speed indexed. It's been great at doing most things well. In a way it lets the road or mountain bikes really shine when I decide on a specific route one of those bikes was made for. Otherwise I grab this and wind up where I wind up.

I've always liked the look of this crankset:
